Re: White Sands Hunt is a coming

When I went last year, I shot mine in a canyon about 1 mile from the road. Luckily they let you take an ATV if you have had a safety course and wear a helmet and gloves. I just dragged it down to an arroyo and backed the ATV up to the bank, flopped the Oryx down onto the back and tied it down. Was smooth sailing from there. You can only use the ATV for game retrieval though so keep that in mind.

Re: White Sands Hunt is a coming

I drew mine the very first time that I put in. I didn't draw one this year though. I put in for the badge hunts though. If you know someone who works there you can put in for those and they can take you on the range to hunt. I like those hunts a lot because you can go hunt every weekend for a month. Lets you be a little more picky on which one you shoot. After eating this oryx from last year, I don't think that I will care how big of one I shoot. Best game meat that I have tasted.

Re: White Sands Hunt is a coming

I was able to draw my oryx tag on the second try. I am sure my odds were better because I applied for the Iraq war vet hunt. I haven't tried the regular oryx draw. I spoke with the guy that runs the hunts , he said that they received 34000+ applicants last year. They only issue 1000 tags... So for the regular hunts draw sucked. The tags do change every year, so good luck!

Well, this was my second year to apply. I was told it was a shot in the dark to draw. Thanks for the encouragement and good luck to the guys out there this year.
